Received this e-mail today from U.S. Senator Jeff Merkley (D. OR) in support of Richard Cordray’s (D. OH) gubernatorial campaign:
President Obama & Richard Cordray (D. OH)
At a campaign rally in Ohio on Friday, Donald Trump finally told the truth about something: He’s really, really mad at Rich Cordray for being so hard on his corrupt Wall Street friends.
As President Obama’s consumer watchdog, Rich made big financial institutions pay bigly. He sent an astonishing $12 billion back to consumers who were cheated and ripped off.
With polling dead even in the race for Ohio’s next governor, Trump is all in to stop Rich. Why? He knows Rich’s record of holding guys like Trump accountable and he’s terrified. In his administration, corporations and rich guys aren’t held accountable – quite the opposite.
It’s not just Donald Trump. National Republican mega-donors who are spending big to back Rich’s opponent Mike DeWine.
Here’s the good news: Rich Cordray is building a grassroots movement in every corner of Ohio to fight back again Donald Trump and the Wall Street billionaires.
But Rich needs our help to get more organizers and more volunteers knocking doors so that voters hear the truth directly.
Let’s make sure we’re doing everything we can to help.
Rich’s team is facing a make or break deadline in just a few short days. Can you chip in and make sure his team reaches their $50,000 goal before the end of August?
